Sheriff Gerace offers July Fourth safety tips

7/4/2006 - MAYVILLE — Sheriff Joseph Gerace is asking Chautauqua County residents to enjoy the nation’s birthday in a safe and responsible manner.Top on his list of advice is fireworks. “Please leave fireworks to the professionals. There are several major fireworks displays planned around the county,” he noted.Possession of fireworks in New York state is unlawful and deputies will be making arrests whenever possible, Gerace said.He went on to say illegal fireworks also result in a number of unnecessary injuries during the July Fourth holiday and that these injuries are sustained by children.“The use of illegal fireworks also increases the demands upon law enforcement at a time when their resources are needed for other purposes.The sheriff’s advice also covers traffic and boating safety.“Give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination. Many road rage incidents occur because people are in a hurry to get from one place to another.“Be courteous as a driver, even if the other driver is not and remember to buckle your seat belt. Not only is it the law, it can save your life or prevent serious injuries.”Just like highway traffic incidents, the combination of alcohol and boating can lead to tragedy.‘‘If you are drinking, have a qualified non-drinker operate your vessel and check the vessel for proper equipment.“If you plan to be on the water during the July Fourth fireworks displays, be especially careful. Operate defensively and make sure your vessel’s lights are in working order.”
